As I am sitting in an almost completely empty office on the day after thanksgiving I thought it would be appropriate to give a shout out to a great local radio station that is helping me get through this day. 89.7 WTMD is a listener supported radio station associated with Towson University and is one of the few radio stations I have found in Baltimore that plays newer unique music and consistently spotlights local artists.
WTMD considers themselves “a community cultural clearinghouse for street-level arts activities built on new and interesting contemporary popular music” or in general a local centric independent rock station. If you are looking for the latest hits from Pit Bull and Lady Gaga you have come to the wrong place.(z104.3 maybe?) However, if you just want some more chill music or have an interest in local acts this is a fantastic place to get a taste of some music that you will likely have the opportunity to see live in local venues. You can check it out on FM 89.7 or online at wtmd.org.
